Using Playbook on an airplane

Does anyone know if a special charger adapter is needed to charge a Playbook on an airplane?  With long flights it will definitely run out of charge during the flight.

Ask the airline if they provide power outlets at the seat. I know most business class seats will have them. Economy class may have ghtem only at certain seats or not at all.

Re: Using Playbook on an airplane

The last plane I used (Airbus) had usb connections at every seat to connect computers. Bring your usb cable with you to connect your PB. Also in settings there is one for Airplane Mode. When activated it shows an airplane icon on the top of your home screen.
